ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the United States soldiers who have died in Iraq during the war in 2004. Close buddies since their school days in California, they fought as Marines--and died side by side. And on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, under cloudy skies at the Clovis Cemetery in Fresno County, Calif., Jared Hubbard, 22, and Jeremiah Baro, 21, were buried together. In 2001 they joined the Marines and on their second tour in Iraq worked together as an elite sniper team, with Baro, a corporal, the sharpshooter and Hubbard, a lance corporal, the spotter. The night before Shane Kielion shipped out in September for his second tour in Iraq, his pregnant wife, April, pulled out a camcorder to tape the Marine lance corporal reading storybooks to their unborn baby. At the funeral a family friend who was a Marine recruiter asked Shane if he had considered the military.
